"Breaking Silence": Domestic Violence awareness (Houston)

On Saturday, March 29, from 11:00AM to 1:00PM, Vox Culture will host its second event from its Proclaiming Humanity series, "Breaking Silence"!

"Breaking Silence", conducted in partnership with the Tahirih Justice Center, will feature BREAK DANCING, POETRY READING, and a PANEL DISCUSSION with experts on domestic violence from Houston's increasingly diverse population:

• Anne Chandler, JD - Houston Director, Tahirih Justice Center
• Mustafaa Carroll - Executive Director, Texas chapter of CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations)
• Bibi Khan - President, An-nisa Hope Center
• Abhilasha Vineet - Director of Community Education & Outreach, DAYA
• Cristal Cervantes - Community Educator, HAWC (Houston Area Women's Center)

These five inspirational leaders will speak on domestic violence and its impact on the Houston population, specifically within immigrant communities. A Q&A period will follow their brief presentations.

This event will include an opening poetry reading by Samira R. Noorali. Additionally, the youth of Break Free Community Center will demonstrate their support by breakdancing as a symbolic gesture of our community standing up for the victims of domestic violence and breaking the chain of silence.
